I recycled the connection but that doesn't change anything. I've also uninstalled modem from network adaptors, rebooted the computer, allowed the system to detect the modem as new hardware, directed the driver install to a current driver. However, no matter what I try, the modem always gets installed as a network adaptor.
The firewall was ZoneAlarm. The computer is using the XP firewall now.
My own system is similar to my daughter's, it uses an Asus P4P800 MB with a different onboard NIC card, XP, and the same cable modem. Device Manager on my computer lists a single network adaptor, the onboard NIC card, but it does not list the modem anywhere ... this is most likely how it should look on my daughter's computer.
